The original molds for many of the fabulous porcelain birds are resting in the garage...as they have for probably the last 50 years. On top of that is a full sized kiln, potter's wheel, 50 gallon Red Wing self tap crock, parts of figurines, whole pieces never fired or glazed...lanterns...tools...bits and pieces of projects never finished ( Howard Ball created some of the mastodons and saber tooth cats at the La Brea Tar Pits and George Page museum). It is not often you see boxes labeled "bird claws". So come and dig!

Antique toys, jewelry, and as mentioned, books books books. Please note, that while the majority of books will be in the usual pricing range, there will be many that will be separately priced...if you come ready to bargain for a buck a book, you do so at your own peril!!!

Wow...where to start? This is an amazing sale from the estate of one of the founding members of the Ball Brothers pottery and porcelain company that operated from Inglewood during the 1950's. Howard Ball also worked for Brad Keeler and other pottery companies and all are represented in this collection. Some may be prototypes, some are damaged, but all are pretty spectacular! There are dozens upon dozens of pieces from the highest styled cockatoos to the common geese and ducks.
